Pesticides are not good for you. I recommend organic produce whenever possible. However, organic produce can be expensive. Would you like a list of 12 fruits and vegetables you should ALWAYS buy organic (also known as The Dirty Dozen)? There’s also a list called The Clean Fifteen, which is a list of 15 fruits and vegetables that contain lower levels of pesticides when not organic. This should save you some money. We all know that money doesn’t grow on trees. If it did, would it be part of the 12 or the 15? 🙂
Thanks to the Environmental Working Group (EWG) for their work on this.
